Crystal Serenity

At 68,000 tons and capable of serving 1,080 guests, Crystal Serenity is our largest ship. However, like her sister ship, she maintains one of the highest space-per-guest ratios at sea, so you'll never feel crowded. Featuring many of the same popular public spaces and amenities as Crystal Symphony, Crystal Serenity serves up innovation in the form of new dining venues like Tastes, Silk Road and The Sushi Bar.
